44.7 Record flooding of tens of thousands of acres will take place with most of the levees in this area overtopped or in the process of being overtopped. Severe backwater flooding will take place at all bayous that exhaust their water into the red river.
41 The kansas city southern rainroad bed flooded and closed. Several thousand acres of floodplain inundated. Severe backwater flooding along bayou pierre with backup of water into black, clear and saline lakes will take place. Severe backwater flooding problems will affect the cane river up to the city of natchitoches louisiana with thousands of acres of farming and grazing land inundated.
40 Overflow of levee system will top levee that extends from near campti to north of clarence louisiana. Major backwater flooding problems will affect bayou pierre, black and saline bayous and the cane river tributaries with thousands of acres flooded. Severe backwater flooding will spread upstream from the confluence of bayou pierre with the red river to evelyn louisiana. Also there will be severe backwater flooding of black and clear lakes from high water on the red river.
38 The low part of the levee from north of grand ecore will be overflowed with several hundred acres flooded.
36 Minor lowland flooding of several hundred acres both upstream and downstream from grand ecore will take place with severe backwater flooding of tributary bayous that include bayou pierre along with saline and black bayous. Backwater flooding will also affect iatt and nantaches bayous as well as severe backwater flooding over the dams at clear and saline lakes.
33 Minor flooding of lowlands in the red river floodplain will take place.
